The Mosaic

There is a mosaic

Beneath my feet

Pages of poems

Torn and taped together

Beneath the soil

There is blood

And broken bones

A graveyard of moments

When depression had

Chained me to my bed

When betrayals had

Starved me of oxygen

When hopelessness had

Hanged me at the gallows

But those moments are buried

And I have learnt to stop digging them up

Now the pavement has flowers

Peeking through

The scent of new beginnings

Filling the May air

And I can dare to say

That I am finally

Dancing across

A pathway of healing

    "A graveyard of moments" was where I was initially hooked.... but wow, I seriously am loving this series. It's got so many layers of depth and just little gems of relatable truth that speak to me so deeply!! That last stanza created a sense of hope that left me feeling uplifted and excited to see what the next part will hold!! Great work here Poppy!!
